about me

Hello Ruby Tuesday...


I'm from the States but have lived in various countries overseas for half of the last 16 years.

I've had the honor of representing the US (as a junior), Bermuda and Costa Rica in international tournaments

When in the States, I live in the DC area and play the WBL Unit game

Sorry, this user has no cards yet.
Gutless, conservative, or reasonable?
Definitely on the stronger side of the range. But my pd once told me: "Sven, you're allowed to have a max"
Gutless, conservative, or reasonable?
3d p 3n? - It could happen if you don't pass here :)
Forcing or non-forcing
If neither of you has a heart stopper, but you have nothing better than a seven card fit. Why would you wnt to move off of 1
Gutless, conservative, or reasonable?
I'm somewhere between conservative and gutless. You only showed 8 points with your overcall. Pd can have as little as Kxx Qxxx xx xxxx and you're on a hook against opener for game.
Mark Chen's bidding problem: T6 AKJ762 K7 KQ3
Tough hand
Michael Kopera's bidding problem: KJ65 KT54 T6 Q93
We can practically call out list pd's hand. Pd has forced to the 5-level opposite a simple 1H response to 1C. Pd doesn't have the K or T - AQ9x is the minimum holding. - Although it's also possible pd is 5-6 hearts and clubs. Pd also doesn't ...
Michael Kopera's bidding problem: KJ65 KT54 T6 Q93
Pd knows about the heart split?
Michael Kopera's bidding problem: KJ65 KT54 T6 Q93
It's tough here. In hearts, i may be able to pitch spade losers on pd's clubs, but I may suffer a club ruff or go down on a bad heart break. I could see an argument either way.
As it was given to me4.
No. We think south is crazy to bid keycard on this auction. But the hand with more than half the controls in the deck, four-card support for partner's opening bid and shortness in the preemptors suit would be the one to move past game.
As it was given to me4.
You have qxx in two suits and no shortness. Nothing says you belong beyond 4
